A quick update in that the Probate office noticed a tear in the left hand corner of the Will and we want to establish how it got there and whether it was noticed before. My brother was asking whether the solicitors said anything and seems all three of us have to make a declaration. I put it in the envelope and posted but neither my youngest brother nor I noticed any tear.
I did say that I could have a look at the copy of the Will of course it was held in a solicitors office and transferred to another solicitor on the latter's retirement.
PS: All I would need is to get the blame for this.
no you have apologised enough you didnt see it nor your younger brother it could have been done when they took it out of the envelope. just write the cover letter send and forget it. they will blame you but dont blame yourself. accident not a catastrophe. dont dwell or ruminate and maybe leave the chocolate alone as they will have to make a chocolate allowance for all the stress they have caused you stop thinkingI'll have a look at my photographs of the Will and the copy. Should I apologise if it was as a result of me putting it in the envelope?
thats what i saidLooking at the photos of that actual Will and the copy it looks like it's in perfect condition but it was bound by twine so I wonder if there is a chance that it could have been damaged in the probate office! Anyway I am going to consider the declaration.
I have sent an email to my brothers admitting that the Will could have been damaged by my putting it in the envelope but also by the green twine if it was removed by the Probate office. Either way it would have been an accident. Has anyone else had this unique problem?
